Summary: Ghosts, demons, and goblins are terrorizing a small New England town since Melissa (Shari Belafonte) and her friends accidentally revived the witch Lucinda (Jonelle Allen) through a Halloween-prank. Now it means to send Lucinda and her entourage of terrible-looking undead back to the grave. And it has to be done not later than midnight, otherwise these devilish creatures will get the town under their spell for all eternity...

Our Ranking

short review:

"American Graffity" meets "The Munsters" in this typical 80s-style horror-comedy (including the inevitable song-and-dance scene) where the dead come back to life. That's not really a new idea, but the film has it's own charm and features Shari Belafonte (daughter of "Calypso-King" Harry Belafonte) as a vampire.
